    Hey everyone, new here. I had a lightening strike and my module for splitting the phone lines throughout the house is out. It looks very simple and I think if I replace these 5 components then I'll be good to go. I found one on digi-key for a few bucks, but the other four (all the same) don't seem to have many identifying characteristics. They are about a 1/2 inch x 1/2 x 1/4 with two leads and on the top they have a w in a circle followed by "TIP" and then say "T 1A"

    I attached a photo. Thanks!

    Don't know.
    The circled 'W' is probably the Westinghouse logo,....
    That might get you started.

    Ya, that's what I was thinking as well. Surprised there's not more info printed on it. Thanks.

    T 1A is a telltale for it possibly being a slo-blo 1A fuse.

    So do you think I can replace these with any slo-blo 1a fuse? Where would I find something comparable?

    (If I damage this board further it's ok cause it's only $40 to replace anyway. Just thought I'd try the easy fix.)

    Thanks for the input so far :)
